Lost Horizons share “She Led Me Away” featuring Tim Smith

Today Lost Horizons have shared a new song entitled “She Led me Away”, which features Tim Smith, formerly of Midlake on vocal duties. Listen to the track now below…

Talking about the track, Simon Raymonde said: “This track started as an improvised bass, drums and piano tune and thanks to Will Stratton ended up as an acoustic guitar track. That was partly to do with Tim’s vocals, because when i realized that he really WAS going to sing on it, I wanted to be sure the music didn’t get in the way too much. After all, a “Tim Smith” vocal in any shape or form these days is as rare as a sighting of the Siberian dusky thrush. It’s no secret that his perfectionism has meant that his recorded output has slowed to a snail’s pace, to be honest, even slower than that, so I didn’t have massively high hopes when I sent him the song and asked if he’d like to sing on it. All the more wonderful that he wrote and recorded the vocals within just a couple of weeks!  I can’t say he didn’t have doubts about his performance, that prefaced the arrival of each demo track but I responded so enthusiastically, this seemed to have done the trick. It’s brilliant to have Tim Smith back making music and what I will add, is that the progress on his own HARP record is significant, after a recent trip to my home town of Brighton, and hopefully we can enjoy even more of those sad, melancholy tones before too long.”

Later this year, Lost Horizons will head out on tour which sees them stopping off at Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik. For the live incarnation of the band, Lost Horizons will include three vocalists: Ed Riman aka Hilang Child and Beth Cannon, both of whom appear on the album, as well as Helen Ganya Brown who records under the alias Dog In The Snow.
